Kim Kardashian

Okay, this one we had to include just for the laughs. Kim Kardashian is barely an actress, and she’s even less of a singer. But she did record a single once, and no matter what the reason for it was, we now have the timeless classic, “Jam (Turn It Up)”.

Back in 2011, Kim took the leap into the music biz, like plenty of other wannabe reality stars have done in the past. She released the single “Jam (Turn It Up) in 2011, and proceeds from the song were donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, so at least it was for a good cause.

Kim revealed after recording “Jam” that she didn’t have any intentions of recording an album anytime soon, and later said she regretted recording the single. She told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, “I don’t like it when people kind of dabble into things they shouldn’t be. And that I don’t think I should have. Like, what gave me the right to think I could be a singer? Like, I don’t have a good voice.”

But it seems like it may have just been a plot point for her TV show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The single was written and produced by The-Dream, who also provided backing vocals on the track. Dream reached out to Kim with the offer to make a song in the first place, and the whole thing was documented on the reality show, including the filming of a very sexy music video that has never been officially released.

You know what? This may not even be the worst song on the list, and Kim had fun doing it, plus half of the proceeds went to charity. The only downside is that this horrible song is going to be stuck in your head for days. Sorry about that!
